I am actually celebrating ONE YEAR of Teacher by trade - Mother by nature! You see, I like to do things a bit differently...I set up a Facebook page on the 16th May 2014 and then set up this blog on the 24th September 2014. So really, Teacher by trade - Mother by nature (the name) has been around for almost one year. (I might do something special in September to celebrate a year of my 'blog'!)
I created Teacher by trade - Mother by nature a few months after my son was born. I needed to keep my mind stimulated, and wanted a place where I could share my thoughts, interests and things that I am passionate about - rather than sharing it on my personal page. I was really excited about my new 'blogging' journey and it gave me an excuse to be on Facebook (ha!).
The name Teacher by trade - Mother by nature has been with me for many years. When people ask me what I do, I tell them I am a teacher by trade (it's my career) and a mother by nature - Mum to Miss B and Master M. I felt it was the perfect name and it describes who I am, so I went with it and I love it!
I never thought in a million years I would call myself a 'blogger' and that Teacher by trade - Mother by nature would be where it is today! I have learned so much in my first year of blogging and I am really enjoying the experience. Yes, there have been times where I have had to walk away from the laptop, but at the end of the day, blogging makes me happy - it's my space, it is who I am now and I enjoy connecting with people around the world and hopefully inspiring them.
Teacher by trade - Mother by nature is where I can share tidbits of my life, home and family and I am really glad that you are with me every step of the way. I want to personally 'Thank You' all for reading, commenting, liking, sharing, pinning my posts, tweeting, following me on Instagram and subscribing to my blog.
To celebrate ONE YEAR of Teacher by trade - Mother by nature, I will be announcing a special giveaway* on Saturday, so watch this space.
